We chose Anne as our realtor based on her experience in successfully selling many homes in our neighborhood (Bradford Estates, Morris Township) and her clear, logical presentation to us of her proposed process, timing and preliminary pricing. From our initial meeting to dealing with post-closing issues Anne was always the consummate professional, readily available, thoughtful, analytical and a pleasure to work with. We found her to be realistic and flexible in dealing with a changing market environment. Among other things, Anne was also very helpful with her recommendations of contractors, movers, estate sale agents, etc. As she thought would be the case, we were able to sell our home within a few days of listing after receiving several offers at our asking price or above. We would highly recommend Anne to anyone contemplating the sale of their home.

Thank you much for representing us so well in the recent sale of our home in Morris Township, New Jersey. Your advice was as prescient as it was gracefully offered, and your professionalism at every moment is unsurpassed in our experience. This was our eleventh sale or purchase of a home, and no other agent served us as well as you did.
Not only did you represent us well in the traditional role of agent, you also served as our sounding board in times of stress, listening to us carefully and offering us a positive way to view our situation. We believe that the sale process would have been even more successful if you had represented us instead of our lawyer!
Because we moved to another state before the house was ready to show, you also served as our contractor on the several repairs and other preparation required, even before the house was listed in the market. That level of care and service has no price, and we offer our gratitude and deep appreciation for your care of us as well as of the house.
Anne, if we could have taken you with us for future home purchases or acquisitions, we would surely have done so! Please let us know if we can serve as a reference in your future work. We would be honored to do so. Sincerely,
Charles & Nell Sanders
Dear Anne, Thank you so much for making the sale of our family home in Florham Park resolve as efficiently and painlessly as possible. Parting with the house that one has grown up in is no easy task but my sister Diane and I felt we were in professional hands at every step.
You defy every stereotype of "the realtor." You are intelligent. You Listen. You make valuable suggestions. Above all, you were compassionate with regard to our situation.
Best of luck and warm wishes
It would not be negligent of us not to share with you our satisfaction in the services RE/MAX provided in the sale of our home in Morristown. Special thanks, to Anne Hartman.
Right from our initial contract, determining a fair selling priced for our market, to covering every detail to help us during the stressful time, Anne was there. Even after we arrived at our new home in Ohio Anne followed up with every detail that insured final closure for our sale.
It is too often we neglect to recognize those who demonstrate outstanding performance. Anne is a critical asset to your organization and we would highly recommend her to any potential customer.

My family and I have recently had the pleasure of working with Anne Hartman on the sale of our previous home, and purchase of our new home. From beginning to end. Anne's extensive knowledge of Morris Township and the real estate business, along with her ever-calm and professional attitude, made all the difference. We first contacted Anne for a market assessment of our home in October. She provided all the information we needed to list our home at the right price. At the same time, she began an exhaustive search of the market for our new home. With the New Jersey housing market at near a peak, we had questions and concerns, which Anne always answered promptly, and with excellent judgement. We, in fact came to rely very heavily on her advice, especially during the negotiations on both the sell and buy side. Negotiations were successfully completed, and offers accepted, to the satisfaction of all parties. Attorney reviews, home inspections, appraisals, and renovation estimates were next. It became clear that Anne was well respected, and well connected, in the community. She recommended an excellent attorney, and other professionals that made for a very smooth process, right up to closing. Initially, my husband and I did not appreciate the many details, phone calls, faxes, visits, and follow-ups required to make all the transactions flow seamlessly. Anne was with us every step of the way. She even contacted our utility companies to have our services switched on closing day! Now knowing more about the complexities and emotions involved in home sales/purchases, I can't imagine how we would have gotten through it without Anne's help. With so much at stake, the importance of working with a true professional such as Anne is cannot be over-emphasized. Needless to say, I would recommend Anne without hesitation to anyone considering a change of residence, and would be glad to speak with prospective clients in this regard.
Ruth and I wish to express our appreciation to you for your efforts on our behalf over the past several months. As you recall we talked with several agents during the decision making process. We decided to work with you not only because of the thoroughness of your market analysis but because we like your professional demeanor. We just felt more comfortable placing our trust in you and, in retrospect, we are very glad we did! Anne, we couldn't be happier with the assistance you provided through all phases of the process. We not only sold our house quickly - multiple offers within a week from the day we put it on the market! - but we were able to work through a number of complexities on the selection and purchase of another home that met the rather narrow criteria we had established. This seems woefully understated but I don't know how else to say it. For instance, we could not have preceded with our vacation plans had we not been able to rely on your assistance while we were gone. You have no idea what that meant to us. Should we move again we would ask you to help us. If anyone asks us for a recommendation, we would wholeheartedly recommend you. Our very best wishes to you and we look forward to seeing your signs in the yards throughout the area. With heartfelt gratitude.
Congratulations on the recent successful marketing of the property of my late Aunt: Grace G. Burton, 41 Radtke Road, Randolph, NJ.
Your enthusiasm, skill marketing savvy, attention to detail and stick-to-it-ive-ness combined to result in a much better outcome than any of us could have possibly imagined at the outset of the process.
Your detailed market analysis was comprehensive, very well presented, and right on the money in terms of the value to be expected.
Your tips on the pre-sale preparation of the house and defining of desirable features did much to facilitate the high level initial bidding and the rapid turn-a-round when the original bidders opted out.
Finally, your skill at negotiation in some very difficult situations was able to preserve the integrity of our position and bring the project to fruition within our goals and schedule.
Your personal touch in this whole process made us feel like we were working with a close friend who really cared and was part of our family team.
Once again, many, many, thanks for a highly professional job. You are truly a champion!
Robert D. Gallagher, Executor
Patty and I want to thank you very much for your outstanding work in making our home sale a reality. Your help in staging our home and recommending repairs, as well as providing the vendors to execute them, were invaluable. Your mastery at analyzing the correct list price in this very challenging marketing resulted in 2 offers at the list price, with a fast closing and excellent terms. We are truly amazed that you could do what many of our neighbors were unable to in this real estate market.
It was very nice in a way that you helped us to find the right home when we moved to New Jersey and helped us to find the right price when we needed to return to the Midwest. During those 6 years in between, it was also great that you kept in touch with us and always advised us of the current market conditions. We appreciated your professionalism, market knowledge and friendship. Truly, thanks for everything!

My husband and I have worked with Anne for over 15 years. She rented a condo for us when we first moved to Morristown, and since then we have purchased two homes with her. Also, during this time we traveled overseas and Anne was the Property Manager for our home.
Anne is always professional, ethical and very thorough. We have enjoyed knowing her and have benefited from her Real Estate expertise over the years.
In conclusion, we would not hesitate to recommend Anne to anyone and everyone (which we always do). Besides being a great realtor she is a great person.
Kimberly & Brent
Working with Anne was a pleasure. She is kind and patient and really works with you to find you the right home! We would work with her in an instant again and continue to recommend her to friends.

Anne did a magnificent job under extraordinarily difficult circumstances, as she had to coordinate the sale of a very large home (on 5 acres) at a very bad time in the market cycle, in a divorce situation where the spouse in possession of the residence was being extremely uncooperative. Besides being a highly skilled realtor with great knowledge of the market, Anne was willing to go far beyond the scope of what could reasonably have been expected of a realtor in getting the house in shape to be sold, maintained in presentable condition during the extended marketing period, and then taking care of numerous details which had to be coordinated to get the closing accomplished.. The fact that Anne has the patience of a saint came in handy, as well.
We were first-time home buyers and completely ignorant of the home-buying process. We couldn't have done it without Anne. From our first meeting, to showing us properties, through closing, she was there every step of the way, patiently answering our many (many!) questions.I also appreciated her several good pieces of advice, and every reference she gave us was wonderful as well. I highly recommend Anne to anyone looking for a home.
Sean & Tae
Anne is a true professional to work with in every way. My one and only open house was a hit with well placed balloons & signs. My place sold in 5 days. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to sell property in NJ.
Anne was wonderful to work with in every respect. She went above and beyond throughout the entire process of selling my condo. Would recommend her without question.
Anne Hartman is a five star realtor. She sold our home in a short period of time in a challenging market. She is reliable, respectful, encouraging and a true professional. She guided us through this process gently, staged our home with a professional eye, recommended the perfect price point, brought in an experienced photographer and created an exceptional sales brochure. Anne gets results.
Anne has assisted us with multiple properties. We recommend her highly. There is no one better. We have found an outstanding realtor and gained a friend.
